Family Counselling Centre is now offering Video / Virtual Counselling service for eligible new and existing clients. The service is available for Employee/Member Assistance Program (E/MAP) clients and all Lambton County residents; including those eligible for a counselling subsidy provided by the United Way of Sarnia Lambton and those who are a victim of domestic violence.
For more information or to arrange a Virtual Counselling session, contact Intake at 519-336-0120 or speak with your counsellor
Virtual Counselling lets anyone with access to the internet; a camera & microphone equipped device (computer, phone or tablet) receive a virtual counselling session from one of the agency’s professional, registered counsellors. Regardless of location.
Family Counselling Centre never stopped providing service. Since the Covid-19 lockdown began in March, Family Counselling Centre has continued to provide counselling services by telephone for new and existing clients. Telephone and virtual counselling are different than face-to-face counselling but they do work. If you are experiencing anxiety or depression or finding it difficult to cope, contact Family Counselling Centre. We are here to help.
As Provincial restrictions ease and Public Health recommendations change, FCC has a plan to gradually move back to providing face-to-face counselling. In doing so, the safety of clients, staff and the community will be the priority. Telephone and virtual counselling will remain as ongoing options.
Please remember, E/MAP clients can also log into the FSEAP website for tip sheets and information related to coping with Covid as well as general physical and mental health information.
Family Counselling Centre also continues to provide assistance through the Distress Line: 519-336-3000 and Tel-Check programs. FCC is pleased to report that in recognition of the need and increased demand for both of these programs during the crisis, your local United Way Sarnia-Lambton quickly provided additional funding to support both programs through their local Compassion Fund. The United Way then facilitated additional funding through the Federally Funded Senior’s Response program as the demand continued to build for both services.
